Lost & Found / LOST: Red beanie around the thin air face
« Last post by JoeC on Yesterday at 07:07:20 pm »
I dropped a red beanie from the top of clean sweep last night. My guess is it would have landed somewhere around the flush/ saigons.  If you see it let me know or drop it at ime. Thanks!

I ride out there a couple of times a year, usually in the late fall, and mostly on the logging and forest roads. they are really quite nice and you can get in some serious miles out there. the last time I rode the MTB trails, it must be at least 6 years ago with Peter Minich, there were lots of trees across the trails. I don't believe that any of those trails are maintained any more. about a month ago I rode up Sawyer River Road and then out the old RR bed & snowmobile trail through the swamp to the Millbrook Connector. From there you could ride all the way over to Rob Brook. In fact that was a popular ride BITD.

Climber57r, Thank you very much for the good info. In my past experience driving in, the road was rough and flooded in spots. So I was wondering about any alternate ways. Perhaps the conditions vary depending on the season. I'll have to give it another try.  Thanks, Be well

The gate on that side is never open and would be a rough pass with a car if it ever was. There is a large parking lot there used all year for those who decide to hike in, about a 15 minute walk to round pond (This lot is known as "Horse Farm Parking"). Going in on reservation road and following the signs for round pond is the best option this time of season. The road is in pretty decent shape and you can drive to the pond until first snow, in which the gate is then closed. At that point everyone hikes in from the above parking area. Enjoy.

I have never entered Pawtuckaway from the north and would like to know if the road is passable with a low car.
Also, can you drive in all the way to the pond?

Have you tried openstreetmap cycle layer to see if the trail system has been posted?

Anyone have the Rob Brook mountain biking map put out by Mountain Cycle Guide Service that they don't use anymore?  Let me know if so, I'd buy it from you.  I'm looking to explore the area more and that seems to be the best resource.

I might have been a bit harsh in my first post. Its not about guides using resources - we have great local guides in the valley that climb all over - but a company using a resource for commercial purposes for that length of time that allot of “beginner” climbers use! They’re from MA and RI - I said stay in MA. They could certainly use the “Auburn ice canyon” or some other resource that isn’t as well traveled. Those places exist.

I don’t got to the flume so it’s not gonna affect me.
